Whether it is a leaky faucet or a water line that is broken with water flooding one of your rooms, you are going to need a plumbing and the thought of hiring a plumber for a repair job really has you a little sick at your stomach. That is too bad but you still have to get it fixed.
Type of plumbers
Before looking for a plumber you need to be aware that there are two different types of plumbers. There are plumber companies that do basic repairs and plumber companies that concentrate on the installation of plumbing systems usually in new built homes or remodeling. These would also be the plumbers who would handle installing of new air and heating units.
Friends and family
The best place to start is talking to neighbors or friends. Or talk to family members who live in the same area and also acquaintances at work. If any of these have had plumbing work recently done you can find out who they used and how competitive were their prices.
To get a good plumber at a decent price, you will need to review and compare several bids from the list that you have started. So if your sister or friend gives you a referral for a plumber they think is great; you need to get at least a couple more and then talk to them about sending a bid for your project.
Any good company will have customer reviews on their website and it would be good to call a couple of these customers and talk to them about any questions that you have. If you are in the Dallas area you can get further information on almost anything to do with plumbing by contacting Dallas Plumbing Company.
Finally you can use Google and see if you can find any customers who were not satisfied with the companies work. Unhappy customers are good about posting on the internet especially on Facebook sites.
